Rabbi Daniel Berman was born in Portland, Maine to an Israeli mother and a father from "old Jewish Boston" in Mattapan/Dorchester.

He holds a B.A. in Jewish History from Columbia University and a J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law. Rabbi Berman practiced law as a trial attorney for several years before attending the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College, where he received his rabbinic ordination in 2010.

He served as Assistant Rabbi at Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Chestnut Hill, and as a faculty member of the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College. Rabbi Berman received pastoral chaplaincy training at Massachusetts General Hospital. An advocate for social justice, he led college students on a learning and service trip to a rural farming community in Honduras with American Jewish World Service.  

Rabbi Berman is an avid runner and biker and an adept second baseman in softball. He loves being with his wife Sarah, who is a business consultant for national non-profit organizations, and their children Elie (11) and Mica (8). He spends every Shabbat afternoon walking to the local library with his daughter Elie to pick out the week's reading, and comes home to play catch with Mica, an aspiring shortstop for the Red Sox. The family is also dedicated to camping, bike riding and hiking.
